Israel intensifies attacks in Gaza as conflicts enter day 5

The Israeli military has intensified its assault on Gaza, as Palestinian militants continue to fire rockets into Israel on the fifth day of hostilities.

Israel’s army said air and ground forces were involved in attacks but had not entered Gaza.

More than 100 people have been killed in Gaza and seven have died in Israel since fighting began on Monday. 

Speaking on the matter, US president Joe Biden defended Israel’s counter attack on Gaza as vengeance for deploying rockets into it.

Palestinians marked the first day of the Eid al-Fitr religious holiday on Thursday under relentless aerial bombardment.

At least six Israelis and one Indian national have also been killed.

The Israeli army said hundreds of rockets have been fired from Gaza towards various locations in Israel.

Additionally, they have added reinforcements near the enclave’s eastern lands.

There have also been more violent confrontations between Jewish Israelis and Palestinian citizens of Israel in several cities inside Israel.

In another potential escalation, at least three rockets were fired from southern Lebanon towards Israel.
